Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher has said that Manchester City are currently 'a level above' Arsenal and Liverpool in the Premier League title race. Despite this, the former England international also believes that Liverpool are City's 'biggest challengers'.
He thinks that, in contrast to last season, Arsenal will not pose a major threat to City's title chances in the 2023/24 campaign - he said that 'gaps will grow' in regard to the two team's positions in the table as the season progresses.
As things stand, Arsenal are third in the Premier League table, just a single point above bitter rivals Tottenham Hotspur - Liverpool are second, while Manchester City are at the top of the pile. Despite this, there are just two points separating fourth from first in the league. Liverpool will take on City in the first Premier League game after the international break in what could be a season-defining encounter.
What did Carragher say regarding the Premier League title race?
Speaking on Sky Sports, Carragher said: "I do think City are still a level above Liverpool and Arsenal right now. That might change over the next four or five months as those teams grow, certainly Liverpool, they've got a lot of new players.
"But it feels like we haven't seen the real City this season and they're still top of the league. When you look at that league table, it's a great league table. City haven't moved away from everybody. In some ways, that was a really good result for the league. As the season goes on, the gaps will grow.
"Why shouldn't Liverpool go to Man City and believe they are in this title race? They are the one team who have really pushed Man City over these last few years. It is a new Liverpool team but they could still be Man City's biggest challengers because they've got players and a manager who has been there before."
